Charges against a former U-T quarterback sports radio talk show host have been dismissed, almost one year after he was arrested for DUI.

Erik Ainge was arrested and charged last July with driving under the influence, implied consent, and roadway lane violation.

According to court paperwork, those charges were dismissed Friday because of "failure to prosecute."

The Associated Press says the police officer who made the original arrest had moved out of state and was unavailable to testify in this case.
